• “Puppet Pals is an amazing app that lets you create animated cartoons.” -David Pogue (NewYork Times)

Children unlock creativity with this easy to use (but hard to put down) interactive puppet show! Even young children can create high quality cartoons from their imaginations. Kids can even star in the show along side the built-in characters!

Teachers: Engage students by allowing them to act out historical events, practice language skills, or deliver a killer book report. The cartoons that kids are making have delighted thousands of teachers and parents around the world - let yours be next to experience this award-winning digital addition to your classroom. The finished projects are easily shared to be watched by others (share via email, Facebook, or simply copy the video file to your computer and distribute how you see fit - Hint: students love to see their work displayed on a classroom blog).
• Create short instructional videos (in any learning area)
• Storytelling, Reports, Historic Retells
• Help reluctant public speakers present to the class
• Help foreign language or ESL students practice their fluency & language skills
• Brainstorming or storyboarding ideas and presentations

Characters chosen from standard curriculum allow kids to fully engage with content - not even realizing they are actually learning valuable lessons that will stay with them for years to come!
